Mathematics and the mathematical patterns found throughout our surroundings offer a powerful and beautiful way of viewing the world. The St. Stephen’s Mathematics and Computer Science Department seeks to enable students to recognize and assimilate mathematical relationships and to use them to make predictions and draw conclusions. Deep thinking is encouraged, mistakes are seen as useful, and persistence and resilience are valued. The department’s objectives are to:

  • Stimulate curiosity about mathematics in the world around us
  • Foster independent, creative, and critical thinking in a cooperative learning environment
  • Develop students’ ability to persevere in the face of difficulty
  • Encourage articulate communication of ideas in oral and written form
  • Promote the use of technology in the learning of mathematics
  • Cultivate solid foundational skills necessary for complex mathematical analysis
